In honour of American Mother's Day this Sunday May 8th and throwback Thursday I'm sharing my first photo as a family of four taken five years ago as well as a special article written for all you hard-working, selfless, beautiful and LOVE-ly mothers, mums, mamans, madres, or however you prefer to be called :) Happy Mother's Day and enjoy this wild ride of motherhood!

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday and my signature workshop this Sunday in London, today I share on my blog the following article that was originally posted on the top U.S. lifestyle media brand Mind Body Green with nearly 26,000 shares and counting!!! 

Yin yoga is a deliciously deep, meditative and reflective practice in which floor-based postures are held for an extended period of time.

Unlike a dynamic yang practice that works the muscles through repetition, Yin works the deeper layers of the body such as the fascia, connective tissues, joints and bones. Yin is a deeply healing and nourishing practice with profound physical, emotional and energetic effects. During challenging times in our lives, our emotions can deplete our bodies of energy. The nourishing practice of Yin yoga helps to restore that energy for overall wellbeing.

A mother today has far less time for herself compared to that of a previous lifetime “B.C.” (before children). What is fundamentally important is how women manage personal energy, as this is what makes a real difference to their health, happiness and harmony. Whether full or part-time at home or at the office, all mothers are working mothers. Constantly juggling and demanding patience, love and energy in order to balance their daily needs and those of loved ones mothers really do need to learn new ways they can take care of themselves. You cannot pour from an empty cup so it's important as mothers we keep our self-care tank full.
